New Delhi: An hour-long special programme on how Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden was tracked and killed by American commandos will be telecast on Discovery Channel June 5.

The programme will provide a second-by-second account of the bin Laden operation -- from the time the intelligence agencies gathered information in 2010 and to the time when he was buried in the sea.

It will show how intelligence tracked bin Laden`s hideout in Pakistan by tracking a senior Al Qaeda courier.

Once the experts were convinced that the compound had Osama, they launched the operation that ended in his death May 2.

The repeat telecast will be June 6.
